I Ate Oklahoma is brought to you in part by:

I’m just a man, standing in front of a website, wondering why I’m awake at 8 a.m. on a Sunday. And the answer is brunch. And insomnia. That definitely plays a part, but the brunch thing is also important.

Brunch is one of those topics that gets brought up a lot around me. Look at the top five questions I get on a given day and you’ll understand:

- How do I get your job?

- Who has the best burger in Oklahoma?

- Where should I go to brunch?

- You think I’d go out with you?


Oof, I really should have vetted these questions first. Aaaaaaanyway, you can see that brunch is one of my FAQs and when I wake up on the weekends, I always wonder if I should once again be tweeting about each and every brunch review on the site. Maybe that’s too inside baseball, but whatever, I think about it and I’m writing this, so here it is.

But this morning, I woke up with a brilliant idea: a blanket with arm holes. Then I remembered that lots of people already had that idea, so instead I’m just rounding up all the best brunch places I know, including some I have yet to review. (Did I miss one or several? Email me and if I agree, I’ll add it to the list.)
